I've been scanning craigslist and found this.

Does anyone know what the problem might be? Could I fix it myself or would a pro need to do it?

Thanks.

500 for a NON FUNCTIONING object is ridiculous.

i say max 350. might be an easy fix though. Amps really aren't that hard to understand.

I would probably pass unless you can either talk him down quite a bit, or you have a friend who can help with repairs. People selling non-functioning gear always worry me because chances are, they've already at least gotten an estimate on repair, and decided it wasn't worth the cost. It just wouldn't make sense to sell something for half of what it's worth in working condition because you don't want to bother with getting it fixed, unless you already know it's going to cost you a fortune in repairs.

Used ones in good condition go for about $1000. At the minimum it needs tubes for at least $125. It's heavy so shipping each way is $45. The potential "savings" for an easy fix might only be $300.

If it was easy... it would probably have been fixed already and not posted for sale.
The sellar probably know that it's going to be too expensive and not worth it.

You have never seen the insides of a Mesa have you.
The guy above me is probably right, if the guy has a $1500 amp he is going to try to fix it.

He says the tubes don't fire up. Hmmmm... Blowed up transformer?


That's what I was thinking. I have looked inside my rectoverb and it's not that complicated though a dual rectifer would probably be far more complex.

Everyone's probably right. It wouldn't be worth the risk. Thanks for the help anyway.

You could work out a deal with the seller where you post date a check, tell him you are going to take it in to have it looked at and if you find out that it's going to cost too much, return it to him. If he desided to screw you, cancel the check and leave the amp at his doorstep
